Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.
What a frustrating problem! Sudden onset of inappropriate urination usually means there is an underlying medical problem; usually this is not behavioral (although this is possible). Underlying issues might include a urinary tract infection, bladder or kidney stones, underlying organ problem causing increased urine production (such as kidney disease, diabetes, or Cushing's syndrome) and the list continues.
My best recommendation is to give Ruiradh the benefit of the doubt and have him seen by his veterinarian tomorrow. He needs an exam and some laboratory testing (urinalysis, and screening blood work) to rule out some of these issues. If an infection is found, then an antibiotic should resolve this and he should stop the urinating.
